Addresses Import


The Address Import process reads files from the ./Incoming/Addresses/ in the SFTP. These files are moved to the archive folder located at ./Incoming/Archive/Addresses/ before being processed in alphanumeric order.

You can perform an update only for an address record that is active in Coupa. An update on an inactive address results in a new record being created.


ID, Location Code, [Name, Line1, Line2, City, State, Postal Code, Country Code', Attention]


You can update anything using "ID". You can update every field (except for "ID") using "Location Code". If you don't have either "ID" or "Location Code", we use the combination of [Name, Line1, Line2, City, State, Postal Code, Country Code', Attention] to look up for an existing address; if not found, we create a new record.
